Can be anything between great and disappointing - depends on the weather

There are days when the color of the water is so amazing that you could just stay and watch forever. On other days after heavy rains the water can look brown and muddy. It is... read more

We started exploring the town, and we started following this beautiful paved path on the outskirts. It led us to the Lechfall. We had ice cream across the street, and then we wandered back to town on the other side of the river.

This is just a nice pit stop. A great view and very clean water. Limited parking is available. Was peaceful for us.

There are days when the color of the water is so amazing that you could just stay and watch forever. On other days after heavy rains the water can look brown and muddy. It is worth walking by especially when you are with children. You can walk down to the river beach, the nearby Walderlebniszentrum or across the river to... More

The walk there is pleasant and not very long. However the attraction itself is quite bland. Moreover places to enjoy the view were not there.

The downstream gorge is nice as is the plaque of Maximilian II. The pedestrian bridge that spans to Lech River is nice and gives you a good view of the gorge, but the best view comes from the parking area. The "falls" themselves are no more than a spill-well. We walked to the falls from our hotel in Bad Faulenbach... More

From foot bridge or viewing terrace admire this staired waterfall which swells even more after a rain. Walk 10 m downstream on the right bank to gaze upon King Maximilian bust in the rock face of the Lech gorge. Across the road drinks & food at the kiosk and steak house.

I have read very different reviews for this attraction. The gist of it is if the water is murky and brown it's not worth going for the 'waterfall' as it will just be dirty water running over some man-made slabs. However the views of the gorge are lovely but there are equally good views as well elsewhere. If the water... More

Easy to walk or bike to, this man made waterfall is quite beautiful due to the amazing colour of the water. A bridge joins the two banks, making a pleasant circular walk from Fussen.
